Dear Abby

Mom wants to shield her kids from relatives’ new lifestyle

DEAR ABBY: A close relative has started working in the adult industry. She now dresses provocatively, showing lots of skin.
She has also covered much of her body with tattoos and adopted the lifestyle of someone in that field.
Our family assumes she’s “going through a phase” and has no idea what she’s really up to.
I have two small children I don’t really want around her, but I’m not sure how to handle the situation. I don’t want to tell her mom what she’s really doing, but at the same time, I don’t want my kids thinking that’s how people in society are. Please help.

New tax: Out-of-towners stand behind tree
Bergeron, Nancy.jpg

Don’t tax you. Don’t tax me. Tax the fellow behind the tree.
– U.S. Sen. Russell Long, Louisiana
Ruston’s Board of Aldermen probably has more experience with sales taxes than it ever dreamed it would have.
Twice over the past two years, the board has dealt with tax increases. It’s on the cusp of doing so again.
In February 2016, aldermen called voters to the polls to decide on a proposed three-quarter-cent sales tax increase that was and is the key to Mayor Ronny Walker’s Moving Ruston Forward capital improvements program.

Trump: Declassified Russia probe papers expose ‘bad things’

in

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is flexing his executive power to declassify secret documents in the Russia investigation, an extraordinary move he says will ensure that “really bad things” at the FBI are exposed.
